Release Notes for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers, IOS XR Release 7.2.1

The Cisco Network Convergence System (NCS) 6000 series router delivers outstanding network agility, packet optical convergence, and a system scale measured in petabits per second. It also facilitates the build-out of next-generation core to:

  • support elastic capacity at the lowest total ownership cost

  • deliver high-bandwidth mobile, video, and cloud services

Running the Cisco IOS XR operating system, Cisco's innovative virtualized operating environment, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router advances the concept of distributed routing and virtualization. With Cisco Virtualized IOS XR, the Cisco NCS 6000 series router brings new levels of programmability and virtualization to:

  • enhance application service offerings

  • increase provisioning speed

  • optimize network economics

The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is engineered for environmental efficiency, with the use of adaptable power consumption. The Cisco NCS 6000 series router is powered by the Cisco nPower Network Processor Units (NPU). These technologies aid the Cisco NCS 6000 series router to achieve the lowest carbon footprint in service provider routing.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router, part of the Cisco NCS 6000 series routers, is the next-generation core routing system that provides industry-leading 8 Tbps of full-duplex network bandwidth through single chassis with eight line cards per chassis.

The Cisco NCS 6008 router runs on Cisco IOS XR software with Linux as the underlying host operating system. A Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) hypervisor provides a virtualized environment to independently run system administration and routing functions on separate virtual machines. This provision makes the new system versatile and robust, and provides immense flexibility for future expansion without the need for a complete system overhaul.

A multi-slice architecture of line cards enables the system to be configured in a mixed operating mode, simultaneously supporting traffic at 10 Gbps and 100 Gbps on slice-level granularity.

What is New in Release 7.2.1

Software Features Introduced in this Release

Password Policy for User Secret

The Cisco IOS XR Software extends the existing password policy support for the user authentication to all types of user secret. The types of secret include Type 5 (MD5 ), 8 (SHA256 ), 9 (sCrypt ) and 10 (SHA512 ). Prior to this release, the support for password policy was only for the Type 7 passwords. The new policy is common to both password and secret of the user. Using irreversible hashed-secrets has the benefit that the other modules in the device cannot retrieve the clear-text form of these secrets. Thus, the enhancement provides more secure secrets for the user names. This policy for user secrets is applicable for local and remote users.

For more information about this feature, see the Configuring AAA Services chapter in the System Security Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers. For complete command reference, see the Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting Commands chapter in the System Security Command Reference for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Support for In-band Telemetry Data Over gRPC Protocol

NCS6000 series routers support streaming telemetry on management interfaces. From Cisco IOS XR, release 7.2.1 and later, model-driven telemetry (MDT) can be streamed out-of-band using physical interfaces of the line cards on the router. The gRPC in-band support for streaming telemetry is supported only in the dial-in mode.

You can specify the IP address of the physical interface in addition to that of the supported management interface. In-band support increases the bandwidth for streaming telemetry on the router from 1G (of management interface) to the bandwidth of the physical interface. MDT supports in-band telemetry to enhance bandwidth using gRPC as the underlying protocol. The support is provided for default VRF; IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

To stream telemetry using gRPC, see Telemetry Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Per-Flow Automated Steering

Currently, the steering of traffic through a Segment Routing (SR) policy is based on the candidate paths of that policy. For a given policy, a candidate path specifies the path to be used to steer traffic to the policy’s destination. The policy determines which candidate path to use based on the candidate path’s preference and state. The candidate path that is valid and has the highest preference is used to steer all traffic using the given policy. This type of policy is called a Per-Destination Policy (PDP).

Per-Flow Automated Traffic Steering introduces a way to steer traffic on an SR policy based on the attributes of the incoming packets, called a Per-Flow Policy (PFP). A PFP provides up to 8 "ways" or options to the endpoint. With a PFP, packets are classified by a classification policy and marked using internal tags called forward classes (FCs). The FC setting of the packet selects the “way”. For example, this “way” can be a traffic-engineered SR path, using a low-delay path to the endpoint. The FC is represented as a numeral with a value of 0 to 7.

For more information about the Per-Flow Automated Steering feature, see the Configure SR-TE Policies chapter in the Segment Routing Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

4+1 Cisco NCS 6000 Multi-Chassis System with ECP

The 4+1 Cisco NCS 6000 multi-chassis system with ECP consists of four line card chassis (LCC) and one fabric card chassis (FCC), interconnected with ECP.

This multi-chassis configuration provides an aggregate bandwidth of 32 Tbps (with first generation line cards) and 64 Tbps (with 2T line cards).

When the 4+1 Cisco NCS 6000 multi-chassis system is used with the ECP (External Control Plane), users can create up to 8 SDRs (secure domain routers).

For details about the 4+1 Cisco NCS 6000 Multi-Chassis System with ECP feature, see the Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series Routers Migration Guide.

QoS on Pseudo-wire Head End (PWHE) Egress

This release introduces the QoS on Pseudo-wire Head End (PWHE) feature on egress that enables enhanced L3VPN and L2VPN service on a service-provider-edge router.

For details about the QoS on PWHE feature on egress, see the Modular QoS Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

IPv6 over GRE support

Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) is a tunneling protocol that provides a simple generic approach to transport packets of one protocol over another protocol by means of encapsulation using an IPv6 address.

For more information, see the chapter Configuring GRE Tunnels in Interface and Hardware Component Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers. For command related to this feature, see GRE Tunnel Interface Commands in Interface and Hardware Component Command Reference for the Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

FEC Support on NCS 6000 Interfaces

Forward Error Correction (FEC) is supported on NCS 6000 interfaces.

The FEC support on NCS 6000 allows you to enable or disable RS-FEC ( Reed-Solomon Codec for Ethernet IEEE 802.3 Clause 91) for optics. These optics can operate in both FEC and non-FEC mode. In the FEC mode, these optics can cover an extended range.

FEC is only supported on these optics

  • QSFP-100G-ER4L-S

  • CPAK-100G-ER4F

For more information on FEC, see the Configuring DWDM chapter in the Interface and Hardware Configuration Guide for Cisco NCS 6000 Series Routers.

Timer Delay Enhancement in BGP

The maximum configurable timer delay for transition of a track to up state is enhanced. In this release, the delay timer value is in the range of 0 to 3600 seconds.

Behavior Change Introduced in this Release

This release introduces following behavior change:

Guidelines for Enabling FIPS

You must follow these guidelines while enabling FIPS mode:

  • You must configure the session with a FIPS-approved cryptographic algorithm. A session configured with non-approved cryptographic algorithm for FIPS (such as, MD5 and HMAC-MD5) does not work. This is applicable for OSPF, BGP, RSVP, ISIS, or any application using key chain with non-approved cryptographic algorithm, and only for FIPS mode (that is, when crypto fips-mode command is configured).

  • If you are using any HMAC-SHA algorithm for a session, then you must ensure that the configured key-string has a minimum length of 14 characters. Otherwise, the session goes down. This is applicable only for FIPS mode.

  • If you try to execute the telnet configuration on a system where the FIPS mode is already enabled, then the system rejects the telnet configuration.

  • If telnet configuration already exists on the system, and if FIPS mode is enabled later, then the system rejects the telnet connection. But, it does not affect the telnet configuration as such.

  • It is recommended to configure the crypto fips-mode command first, followed by the FIPS-related commands in a separate commit. The list of commands related to FIPS with non-approved cryptographic algorithms are:

    • key chain key-chain-name key key-id cryptographic-algorithm MD5

    • key chain key-chain-name key key-id cryptographic-algorithm HMAC-MD5

    • router ospfv3 1 authentication ipsec spi 256 md5 md5-value

    • router ospfv3 1 encryption ipsec spi 256 esp des des-value

    • router ospfv3 1 encryption ipsec spi 256 esp des des-value authentication md5 md5-value

    • snmp-server user username usergroup-name v3 auth md5 priv des56

    • ssh server algorithms key-exchange diffie-hellman-group1-sha1

    • telnet vrf default ipv4 server max-servers server-limit

Hardware Features Introduced in this Release

CPAK-100G-FR-S, QSFP-100G-FR-S, and CPAK-100G-ER4F optical modules are supported on Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series Routers.

Minimum Firmware Requirement

The following table provides the procedures and resources for minimum firmware requirements:

After completing an Return Material Authorization (RMA), upgrade the firmware as per the matrix in this link, which also links to PDF copies of the IOS XR Firmware Upgrade Guides

http://www.cisco.com/web/Cisco_IOS_XR_Software/index.html

For the upgrade procedure, see the Performing System Upgrade and Installing Feature Packages chapter of the Cisco NCS 6008 System Setup and Software Installation Guide

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps13132/tsd_products_support_series_home.html

Important Notes

  • From Release 6.0, the onePK toolkit is not supported.

  • Country-specific laws, regulations, and licenses—In certain countries, use of these products may be prohibited and subject to laws, regulations, or licenses, including requirements applicable to the use of the products under telecommunications and other laws and regulations; customers must comply with all such applicable laws in the countries in which they intend to use the products.

  • BFD limitation—If the current PPS (packets per second) is more than 7000 packets per line card (LC) then on upgrading the Cisco IOS XR software to release 5.2.5 or later the BFD sessions may shut down. You can avoid this scenario by adjusting the PPS per LC so that the load on a LC does not exceed more than 7000 PPS.

    To know the current load (PPS value), use show bfd summary command. Use the bfd address-family ipv4 minimum-interval command to configure BFD timer.

  • Field replacable unit (FRU) removal—For all card removal and replacement (including fabric cards, line cards, fan controller, and RP) follow the instructions provided by Cisco to avoid impact to traffic. See the Cisco Network Convergence System 6000 Series Routers Hardware Installation Guide for procedures.

  • Exceeding Cisco testing—If you intend to test beyond the combined maximum configuration tested and published by Cisco, contact your Cisco Technical Support representative to discuss how to engineer a large-scale configuration for your purpose.
